What an amazing few days our guests have had in Borneo!

In just 4 nights they've had 2 amazing encounters with clouded leopards, 2 marbled cat sightings, 5 groups of gibbons, 8 orangutans, Borneon bristleheads, 2 moon rats, and a real National Geographic moment watching a pair of yellow throated martens eating fruit (we didn't know they did that), and then to top it all off an amazing sighting of a sunbear - this guy paid no attention to us at all, he was walking around munching berries, had a sleep, ate more berries then had a little scratch.
